“We are thrilled to have Educators Credit Union return as a sponsor.” said Victor Drover, Director of the Lakefront 7s. “And to see them increase to the Silver level says a lot about the value of sponsoring a local event.”

About the Lakefront 7s
The Lakefront 7s is a seven-a-side and tag rugby event held annually since 1982 by the Milwaukee Rugby Sevens Association. The event is 100% volunteer-staffed by local area teams including the Milwaukee Barbarians (Men’s Rugby) and Milwaukee Scylla (Women’s Rugby).
The Lakefront 7s is held at Veteran’s Park during the Summerfest celebrations in late June or early July. It features six adult and three youth pitches with beautiful lakefront exposure and sweeping views of Milwaukee’s skyline.
Within walking distance of many of Milwaukee’s finest attractions and it’s historic Third Ward, the Lakefront 7s is an ideal summer destination for both rugby athletes and fans alike, and all proceeds support local rugby.
